I am a world traveler with over nine years of tutoring experience.

My experience as an editor for a publishing company, combined with other professional experience in a variety of positions, allow me to offer students a unique perspective on diverse subjects.

*** Lesson Details ***
Lessons with me are structured, yet flexible, centering around your strengths and weaknesses. Since everything is catered around your individual needs, no two students share the same exact experience. I learn what works best for you based on your study habits, interests and personality and implement any necessary assignments to help you achieve the best possible results. I adopt a very hands-on approach and provide you with additional information and avenues (both creative and technological) to continue learning beyond our sessions in a fun way.

*** Studio Equipment ***
MacBook Pro with necessary Office Suite, PRAAT software, Skype and additional recording material; keyboard and amps

*** Travel Equipment ***
Same as above: MacBook Pro with software; recording equipment as necessary.
